Lewis Hamilton insists a busy fortnight off the track, in which he revealed his first fashion line, has not distracted him from his ultimate goal on it – sealing the 2018 F1 championship.
Hamilton arrives for the Singapore GP with a 30-point advantage over Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel but has had a hectic schedule since claiming the last race in Italy; collaborating with renowned designer Tommy Hilfiger in Shanghai, and then New York, for the launch of his debut clothing range.
It has been an experience an ever-energetic Hamilton has relished, but he still claims this weekend’s race and the title battle has been at the forefront of his mind.
“There’s not been a single moment over these two weeks that I’m not thinking about racing, that I’m not thinking about the championship and how I want to arrive – knowing that you’re coming into a difficult race that you want to try and bring more to,” the Mercedes driver said.
Hamilton has won three of the last four races despite Ferrari’s recent surge and is adamant he won’t change his approach despite his big championship lead.
